Reviews for Ideal Cheese Shop

Ideal Cheese shop is aptly named! This is the perfect shop for high quality cheese and other accouterments. They also sell amazing French baguettes. If you are hosting a dinner party, make this store your first stop. We need more small businesses like this in NYC.

What lease can I say? Ideal sells high quality cheeses and snacks. They carry a wide variety of cheese related items for all occasions.The staff is on point, knowledgeable, and super accommodating.I had a Las minute cheese wheel emergency on New Year’s Eve, Mark and the crew were able to get me what I needed in. Flash. They even gave me advice on how to do what needed to be done. All I can say is thanks for the successful dinner party.

Our experience at Ideal was the sexiest experience we’ve ever had with cheese. We needed 10 cheeses for Christmas. Elijah happily and knowledgeably sampled recommended each cheese with care. He not only did this tastefully and with expertise, but made us feel seen, supported and beautiful, like the cheese lovers we are. The biggest shout out to Elijah for making Christmas miracles come true.
